Setup Chat Queue:

  1. Open a browser and grant consent to allow the chat application in your tenant by using the link below. In the URL you will need to replace "YourAzureTenantId" with your Azure tenant Id.
  1. Create a user in your M365 tenant to use as a service account. This will be the teams meeting organizer and the chats will be created in their account. This user should have a Teams license.

  2. Create a Teams meeting policy with the settings below. Navigate to Microsoft Teams admin center | Meetings | Meeting policies | Add

  • Anonymous users can join a meeting - ON

  • Anonymous users and dial in callers can start a meeting - ON

  1. Assign the meeting policy to the service account user. Navigate to Microsoft Teams admin center | Users | Manage users | Select service account user | Policies tab | Edit | Select the new meeting policy | Apply

  2. Add an app access policy to your tenant. This will allow the chat app to create meetings on behalf of the service account. Open PowerShell and run the following commands:

New-CsApplicationAccessPolicy -Identity LCCChatApps -AppIds "d3d33ff7-dcd7-4073-8942-49c144b66a7a" -Description "Landis Contact Center Chat Apps"
